I admit a friend of ours gave us this stay. So I was surprised when we started climbing the hills. After a scenic drive we arrived at Borgo Mocale. Our room was more like an apartment in this ancient place from the 1300s. You ascend...More

About
Description
It is now a farm made up of two entities of thirteen and four hectares each one and an old farmhouse where in the past two large leaseholder-families lived earning their livelihood on the wood, chestnuts and ...More farming.The farmhouse was constituted after the XII century by a religious benedictine congregation after the abandonment of the Tower House. The many surrounding fields under cultivation are to be attributed to the Benedictines, who created the terracing of the land, achieved by means of stones and woodland. Despite the meagre resources of the ground and the height, the congregation successfully cultivated wheat, maize, vines and olives.Once, after the harvest, wheat was worked in the former farmyard (nowadays the common terrace for the guests). Then it was gathered into sheaves and piles of straw. In the same place, under the moonlight, the gleaning of the maize took place. The leaseholders enjoyed very little of these riches, because they had to give almost the whole harvest to the owner. It was the owner, in fact, the one who decided how much the leaseholder should keep.Also wine-production played an important role in the past: vineyards were achieved on the terracing in a sort of bower. Until the end of the First World War (1918), the production was blooming, but in that year vines were destroyed by vine-louse. Wine-production in Borgo Mocale is now minimal and is only available for the agriturismo's use (owner and guests). This is no doubt an advantage for the production, and the result is an excellent quality of wine. Our method consists in not separating the grasp-stalk from the grapes because the former contains tannin, a natural preserving element. But, for this very reason our wine cannot be transported, because it does not contain artificial preserving substances which maintain it unchanged. Less
